Highgrove House is an imposing 1930's family residence, set in glorious gardens with views over the village of Highweek, the surrounding countryside and the town of Newton Abbot. The property is a substantial detached and individual home on a generous sized plot, close to the town centre of Newton Abbot where a range of amenities can be found including highly regarded primary and secondary schools, a variety of shops, restaurants, doctor surgeries and a recently built hospital. There are good communication links to Exeter and the M5 motorway and Newton Abbot railway station is located only two miles away offering links to London Paddington.

The property was approximately built in 1932, spending part of its early life as a rectory for All Saint's Church at Highweek, which can be seen just across the valley.

The property's accommodation is spacious and elegant throughout, echoing the style of the era, and bedroom accommodation ranges from the generous master through to the characterful formal servant's quarters. The many bay windows at Highgrove House make the most of the views, overlooking the beautiful and the far reaching countryside.

The property is accessed via an original wooden door leading to an entrance porch with wooden panelled flooring. An original wooden part glazed door flows through to a grand entrance hallway with splendid original staircase and doors to principal reception rooms. The ground floor accommodation comprises a superb sized living room with triple aspect windows and attractive central open fireplace with tiled backing, hearth and attractive wooden surround. Further features include wooden panelled flooring, decorative ceiling and picture rails. Further reception rooms include a dining room with attractive feature fireplace with living flame gas fire and twin aspect windows with decorative ceiling. The breakfast room is a good open space with fitted cupboards and a feature fireplace. A sliding door from the breakfast room leads to a utility room and separate door flows through to a generous sized kitchen. The kitchen offers a range of fitted base cupboards, drawers and matching wall cupboards with laminate worktops and part tiled walls. The fitted appliances include a Range style cooker and fridge/freezer. A wooden door leads to a rear porch with a window to the side aspect and a set of patio doors leading to the rear garden. The ground floor accommodation concludes with a downstairs wet room.

This spacious and grand accommodation continues to the first floor, with a winding period staircase leading to a small half landing with a harlequin leaded window overlooking the rear garden. The property offers five double bedrooms in total, with the master bedroom of a particularly generous size benefitting from wooden panelled flooring and triple aspect windows, offering superb views over the surrounding area and countryside. One of the double bedrooms has the added benefit of a UPVC double glazed door and windows to the side aspect leading to a covered veranda, where the views can be truly enjoyed. A family bathroom and separate WC completes the first floor accommodation.

This superb property offers versatile accommodation throughout and is located on a generous sized corner plot and offers many 1930's features throughout. The property benefits from gas fired central heating and would ideally suit a growing family. No onward chain is involved with this property and a viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.  

OUTSIDE Highgrove House is accessed via a set of wrought iron gates through brick pillars onto the sweeping driveway which is bordered by mature raised flowerbeds, incorporating attractive bedded plants, mature shrubbery and trees. The driveway then leads to a wooden garage/workshop with parking for more than four cars. The useful timber and glass greenhouse sits aside the garage, where many of the beautiful flowering plants and shrubs undoubtedly started their lives. The garden at Highgrove wraps around to the side and front and is laid out in several terraces, bordered by hundreds of flowering plants, specimen shrubs, trees and stone walls and stairways.
